Elopement & Vow Renewal Package Fine Print

Let us handle all the details for your elopement. Just show up and say, “I Do”!

Ceremony Location & Times

Our elopement and vow renewal packages include the use of the Tucker House Inn shade garden for your ceremony. The fronds of the giant weeping willow are a magnificent backdrop against which to say your “I do”s. During the time of year when it is not conducive to hold an outdoor event, your package includes a site fee for a private ceremony in the atrium of the Island Museum of Art, a few blocks from the inn. If you prefer a setting in one of our county, state, or national parks with breathtaking views of the water or perhaps the lavender fields in full bloom, an off-premise fee applies.

Plan your ceremony between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. on the second day of your stay at the Tucker House Inn & Harrison House Suites. If you are using the Island Museum of Art, the atrium is available between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday and after 6 p.m. the rest of the week.

There is also a summer surcharge of $250 for weddings June 15 – September 15, as well as those on holidays and holiday weekends.

Take the first night to settle into “island time” prior to the big day.

Wedding Cake

Our in-house pastry chef will prepare a six-inch cake. Choose from devil’s food, old fashion white, or carrot with fruit, chocolate ganache or buttercream filling and Italian buttercream or whipped cream frosting. Please let us know if there are any dietary restrictions or food allergies.

Floral Bouquet

Your package includes a bouquet of flowers from local growers and the inn’s gardens. For weddings outside the peak growing season, your bouquet will include a half dozen roses.

Officiant

The San Juan Island Inn Collection’s in-house officiant will preside at your ceremony.

Breakfast, Dinner & Toast

Your package includes a post-ceremony toast. The food & beverage credit for the Chinook and Sockeye Elopement Packages is at Coho Restaurant. We will then make your dinner reservation to coordinate with the timing of your ceremony. When Coho Restaurant is closed, we offer a dining voucher to another Friday Harbor restaurant. Enjoy a candlelight breakfast delivered to your door the morning after.

Photography/Videography

The San Juan Island Inn Collection’s in-house photographer/videographer will create a custom video of your special day. The package includes three hours of photography/videography including getting ready photos, the ceremony, and dinner reception. If you want to take photos throughout the island, additional time is billed on an hourly basis.

Wedding License

Please apply for your wedding license at least three days prior to your special day.

A 50% deposit on your wedding package and lodging is due at time of booking. The balance is due two weeks prior to arrival for both the wedding and lodging.

Honeymoon Suites

There are three honeymoon suites that are associated with the package: Orcas Suite, Roche Harbor Suite, and Friday Harbor Suite. Lodging and taxes are not included with the elopement package. A two night minimum stay is required for the Chinook, Coho, and Sockeye packages, and a one night minimum stay is required for the Kokanee package.

Cancellation Policy

Any changes and/or cancellation made outside of thirty (30) days prior to arrival will result in a cancellation fee of 15% of your deposit. Inside of thirty days, the cancellation fee is 100% of your deposit. Inside of two weeks, there is no refund.
